Camille had four children and I was number three. My memories of her as a Mom are all great. She was supportive and encouraging.
My memories of her as an adult are that everyone I talked to commented on how wonderful she was. She is still in my thoughts and prayers.

In Emma, Jane Austen wrote: “Where shall we see a better daughter, or a kinder sister, or a truer friend?”
I am convinced (and I know that my Mom would agree) that Austen saw into the future and was writing not only about Emma, but about your AMAZING Mom, Camille Horner.
Your Mom was beautiful inside and out.
And her positivity was contagious.
Maya Angelou observed that people may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.
While you were her favorites, your Mom made us all feel special.
And we were so lucky to have had her in our lives.
